This amazing vintage country tee is for the singer Billy Ray Cyrus from his iconic Achy Breaky Heart Tour which promoted his debut album, Some Gave All. The album was released in 1992 and it featured Cyrus’ most famous hit song “Achy Breaky Heart”, which became a cultural phenomenon. “Achy Breaky Heart” was Cyrus’ debut single and his signature song. It topped the Hot Country Songs chart and became the first country single to achieve Platinum status since 1983, when Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton released “Islands in the Stream”. While some people have tried to mock the catchy ear worm, such as VH1 who placed the tune at the No. 2 spot on their list of “50 Most Awesomely Bad Songs Ever”, the song marked a turning point in the popularity of country music.
Some Gave All actually earned Cyrus a Grammy Nomination for Record of the Year and Best New Artist. Meanwhile the music video for “Achy Breaky Heart”, sparked a mainstream interest in country line dancing. Say what you want about Cyrus, but this multi-platinum selling artist brought country music into the spotlight in the early 90s.
